# [OS X TeX] Very good introduction IMHO

Some quick thoughts:

- why the geography-specific (A4) pagesize?
Wouldn't it be better to use (say) 11" tall x 210mm wide? That way
everyone has the same version and it'll print (but w/ slightly
different margins) w/o scaling on either A4 or letter.
Or, better stilly, use a screen-oriented layout / size --- enable
hyperref for that and suggest people open it in Adobe Acrobat for
reference.

- provide a link / location for lshort

- mention that the Templates'' button in the toolbar in TeXshop will
get one a working template w/ suitable preamble in the preamble section

- why are the figures set to come out on a figure page? why not use
[htbp] and explain what they do and encourage experimentation?

- buncha overfull lines --- use \begin{sloppypar}...\end{sloppypar}
and explain what it fixes, or just stick in a \sloppy at the beginning.

I've got a fair first pass at All the fonts in GWTeX'' (put it
together for a salesperson here at work). Let me finish up my paper and
TUG2003 and I'll post it and we can work to improve it.
